    Great friends aren't hard to find—they're right here! Houghton Mifflin is delighted to publish two more George and Martha readers. Using original art and text from James Marshall's storybooks, the tales are reformatted for beginning readers. Marshall's themes are all resonant with a reading-age child—navigating the waters of first friendships, honesty versus kindness, curiosity versus privacy. These are the kind of deeply humorous, deeply true stories that inspire a love of reading! Story Number One: The Clock George gives Martha a birthday gift that she just can't seem to fit in her home. Story Number Two: The Trip George and Martha use their imagination as they take a trip on an ocean liner. Story Number Three: The Artist George and Martha learn about artistic interpretation.

    Recently revised, this classic guide to star-gazing is sure to delight astronomers of all ages! With more than 40 charts, diagrams and a sprinkling of humor from the author of the popular Curious George series, this book is designed for children (and adults!) who want find stars for the mere pleasure of it.

    Beginning with an overview of the shapes in the sky (constellations), the author has recreated the customary drawings of constellations to make it easier for readers to visualize the constellations. Rather than old style of placing detailed pictures over star groupings, he chose a "dot to dot" format, which offers similar images of the constellation simplified. In the 2nd part, he offers detailed constellation charts and images. The 3rd part provides twelve calendar charts showing you where to look for the constellation and when to look at it at different hours of night, at all times of the night, from nearly any location. In the final section, he provides explanations of how factors such as tilt of the earth's axis and the earth's constant progression around the sun lead to an ever-changing sky; times and time zones; zodiac and the planets; the moon and much more. While the details are worthy of high school level texts, the author's presentation is straightforward and relaxed making them understandable for (nearly) all ages. There is some brief evolutionary commentary. Comparing this to Find the Constellations (#015556) from the same author, you will find this book contains more in-depth information about the stars, more history and detailed star maps. An excellent introduction to the night sky for children of all ages. 160 pgs, pb ~ Deanne

    Wow, how weird is it when you AND your mother learn to cook out of the same "classic" kid's cooking book… and then they republish it, in all its original trimmings? I remember Mom pulling this out when I was younger and excited to learn how to cook "all by myself." And yes, the book looks hauntingly familiar and decidedly retro, with its two-toned illustrations of perky-looking girls in their frocks with aprons and the boys with their hair all slicked back or neatly combed. Of course, all the 245+ recipes are the same too, running the gamut from cakes and other "party" recipes to breakfasts, lunches, dinners, "campfire" cooking, and more. Lists of helps and tips are also included, such as cakemaking tips, cooking "rules", lists of how to measure common ingredients, pictures of common cooking utensils, definitions of cooking terms, and of course, important kitchen manners. Each recipe is simple and kid-friendly (even today!) with necessary ingredients listed in separate boxes, step-by-step directions linked to the ingredients they use, and serving directions. Full-color photos are included of some of the recipes, and a helpful index is found at the back. The whole book is, like the original, spiral-bound in a hardcover jacket, built to stand up to years of kitchen abuse. Destined to be a kitchen "classic" for your home as well. - Jess

    Your child's favorite little monkey, Curious George, is curious about them! The format of this keepsake memory book is very similar to a baby book, but it is one that your child can fill in all by themselves and tell all about their family, friends, school, and plans for their future. Curious George will have them writing, drawing, and pasting photos on every page as they answer his many curious questions. It is great for boys or girls, as it is gender-neutral. Any Curious George fan would love a chance to tell George all about themselves, and you'll love the memories that this book will hold for you to look back on. Hc, 51 pgs. - elise

    This Scientists in the Field title takes a look through the microscope of Dennis Kunkel, a scientist whose specialty is studying tiny plants and animals. Each chapter introduces a topic that Dennis has studied, and incorporates details about different microscopes. Probably the most engaging feature are the large, full-color magnified images of different objects, taken with compound and electron microscopes. Some of the magnified gems here include: butterfly wing scales, mold stalks, grains of pollen, cells, bacteria, mosquitoes, and much more. Younger readers will be fascinated by the magnified images, while older readers will learn more about what microscopists study, how their microscope-viewing studies are useful, and how to become a scientist. 60 pgs. - Jess
